Aquatec was founded by the current managing director in 1990 as a specialist consultancy in oceanographic instrumentation design. Since then, the company has established a diverse portfolio of products for measurement of physical oceanographic and process parameters including temperature, depth, suspended sediment, motion, orientation, cathodic protection, subsea leaks and marine mammal activity, as well as through and above water data communication systems, and marine mammal deterrents.


Aquatec Group employs highly qualified engineering personnel with extensive expertise in oceanographic and offshore applications. In-house expertise includes:

Oceanographic instrumentation

Low power data loggers

Digital signal processing

Temperature and pressure measurement

Underwater optical instrumentation

Suspended sediment acoustic characteristics

High frequency acoustics

Underwater acoustic communication
